Spied! Toyota Supra Poses for a Close-up

A closer look at the upcoming sports car

Our spy photographers caught the Toyota Supra once again wearing design elements borrowed from the FT-1 concept. This time around, the Supra was parked by itselfin front of a gas station, providing the perfect opportunity to take some close-up shots.

For the first time, we get a good look at the car's front end including its large air vents and protruding nose, which could be hiding the same beak we saw on the FT-1 back in 2014. It's still hard to distinguish the shape of the headlights, as this is one of the many elements Toyota is trying its hardest to hide. Looking at the back of the Supra, we can more clearly see the shape of the double bubble roof and the rear window. Somehow, the ducktail spoiler doesn't look quite as large in this set of photos.

The Toyota Supra will share a platform with the BMW Z5, which appears to be heading in a different design direction. Both rear-wheel-drive vehicles will be produced by Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria.

Powertrain options for the Toyota Supra remain unknown. It could source turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines from BMW, or it could use Toyota's new twin-turbo V-6. A hybrid versioncould arrive later down the line.

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it

That a Suzuki Samurai is being featured by Super Street shouldn’t come as a complete shock to some of our long-time fans who know we love capturing something unique. Sure, it’s not a common occurrence and in fact, I can’t recall ever having featured one in the past, but this example, owned and built by
